Yeah would be cool, maybe Top 30 or 20 would be better, there are more jugglers than diabolists I guess.
Someone should totally make this, at YouTube, same as Luke Burrage did, with the posts.

hmm, good ideia to do the top 5 thing but.. not sure about slacks... i mean, Langerz would pwn everyone.
Me and Jonzinhudiabolo had the same ideia by the way but we got stuck at some point if i remember well.
Sorry for bad english :P

Not really my thing but if someone else wants to do this who I am to stop him/her?

Are we here to rate and compare each other (i.e. a popularity contest) or are we here to create stuff... together? Create, share, and inspire each other; push each other's boundaries of what we thought possible from a technical and creative side.

Then again I like what Luke does every year just for the commentary that goes with the top 40 rundown.

Helping people to discover diabolosits and videos that inspire them that they didn't know of before? That's a plus. But I think we can achieve that in other ways too.

Right, I like this way of thinking. It's very ZEN. An old Las Vegas juggler and old friend of Francis Brunn once told me he does not like the idea of the WJF and even IJA, because it promotes unhealthy comparisons (see Chriss Bliss and Jason Garfield) and unfair ratings,  he said he likes the old and ancient tradition in JUDO of giving belts (yellow, orange, red, green, blue, brown, black first dan, black second dan, black third dan)

This is less competitive and more about tracking your own progress/level...if diabolist founded an association this would be more fair and as diabolo is asian- more fitting.  instead of ranking we should form an association that promotes the idea of sharing the art of diabolo creating new forms and inspiring each other... it could be colored ribbons... 

Well, just a thought. Sean, thanks for the info on the Handsticks.

Didn't someone do a blog post about the favorite videos last year? i dont know because i was new, but i remember something like that and it helped me discover new people without ratings
